    I have no idea (sorry, I'm new at this) The little one doesn't look like any of mine if that helps...kinda rules out RIR, buff orp, austrolorpe, buff easter egger, light brahma, partridge silkie. Could be another kind of EE, I'm sure someone will recognize it and chime in![​IMG]

    If you go to feathersite.com it really doesn't look like any Americaunas I've ever seen pictures of...and Americaunas usually have dark markings around the eyes...BUT it does look like a Light Brahma chick. If that is the case I am SO jealous! I am trying to get my hands on some Light Brahma and Buff Brahma babies. [​IMG]

    I don't see any feathering on the feet so likely not a Brahma, and it seems like there's more black than usual for a Delaware. Maybe some sort of Barred X?

    Looks like one of the Mottled Orpington chicks on feathersite.com

    Check with someone who's more familiar with Orps (not I [​IMG])

    Hope you figure it out!
